Warsavr and Magnolia, , In the
. wake of the proposed Calypso
' Falson High school consolidation,
have come up with an Idea. Last
week a delegation ? approached
. Board of Education Chairman Dallas
' Herring with 'the idea, Mr.; Herring
merely passed ' along their action,
making: no: comment X&kty-H.!-'?e-
i The proposal la that ' Xehanarllle;
Warsaw and Magnolia high schools
. consolidate 'into one .master school
' with a new and modern plant lp
' cated aomewhere in 'the 'neighbor
, bood of the Johnson Baptist Church,
at an equal distanceTrom the three
towns. 'J'ift vrfc' 5
, A first impulse of many will be
to oppose it No community likes to'
lose its school. The- fact, remain
; however that further consolidation
-is inevitable If Duplin High Schools
are going, to give our young folk
' the training they need. Should these
three high schools unite there could
. 'be developed one of the finest vo
cational departments to be found in
" any high school in Eastern Carolina.
'' The three agricultural units, home
economics units and a . complete
business course could be given in
' - -addition to other vocational train
Ing programs for those who do not
' pursue their education further, A
music ' department second to none
i: ' could be developed. Many courses
- that are not now offered in the
. three schools could be given, such
; as wider variety of foreign langu
.ages, even Latin could be 'restored,
' "'a subject the Writer thinks should
be required (old fashioned? maybe.)
Consolidate the three libraries and
,v ' it would surpass anything in the
'. county. With such a unit -as this
'" I think, in time, endowments could
:',be developed. A school of this type
should command nothing at all
V less than M.. A. vteachers, And,
.. sports fans, think about the football.
l --ketbaU. aaJ.baU teams
, -that could be developed as weu as
Stk and other sports not now in
- yyied In, and what a; band?
s I believe if a well rounded pro
; gram opuld be developed that pri
'cvate contributions could be secured
0 aid in the construction.
' Let's give' this ' some serious
. thought all o fus in all three com
munities, before Jumping at snap
'v judgements. The idea - cannot be
' carried out tomorrow but it is an
' r ideal to work tpward. Kenansvllle,
t Warsaw and Magnolia can do It In
:.- big way if they want to and if
they want to give their youngsters
c the very best possible in education
; advantages they will think in favor
of such an idea. Modern. transpor
tation and modern roads are open
ing vistas of opportunities undream
ed of in rural Duplin County. ' ?
, The idea does not call for conso
lidation of the primary and elemen
tary schools. By relieving the con
v gestlon in present buildings' the
': lower grades could expand more
and do better work.

' Judge Clifton I Moore of Bur
gaw will address the Boy Scout
rally here Tuesday night ' Duplin
Scouters fortunate in having the
- opportunity, to hear Judge Moore.
w He has been outstanding in Boy
' " Scout work in Pender County for
, many years. " 1 ' K ' , -
In our opinion one of the best, if
not the best appointment Governor
' . Umatead has made since taking of
v flee was the naming of Judge Moore
to the Superior Court bench to
succeed Judge John J. Burney. We
v predict a long and useful Judicial
, career for Judge Moore, We would
1 like to nominate him here and now
- as a future member of the Supreme
Court of North Carolina.
' For some , time now " we , have
looked with questioning eyes at the
red strips on auto bumpers. One
thing we dont like 'is to see autos
; plastered with stickers, posters and
' ' bumper strips eta Our modern
automobiles are all pretty and we
hate to see them marred by a lot of
.' junk. However of late we have been
j thinking about the" red strips on
1 auto bumpers and have concluded
that all cars should, have them on
- front and rear bumpers. To date
the Times' cars do not have them
hut soon wilt It you have paid any
C-'terttlon to cars you approach from
,e rear at night with the stickers
on them you have found they warn
you in ample time that you are
approaching a car. Wouldn't it be
' a good idea to place them on all
" bridge abutments? These little red
stickers, called "Scotchlite", may
be the means of saving hundreds of
Uvea on our highways. ' -

March
loii
, ' by Grady, Mercer y ,' .
: $2,704.81 was spent by Uie Duplin
County Chapten The National
Foundation for Infantile Paralysis,
in assisting families of local patterns
to meet the high costs of hospitali
zation, doctor bills, orthopedic ap
pliances and transportation, accord
ing to a ' report "submitted bf Mr.
Earlle C. Sanderson, . Treasurer, of
the local chapter. These funds were
spent In assisting 2 cases of polio
stricken in 1953 and tor continuing
care for ,1 cases of polio stiH re
quiring assistance from : previous
years. Since all the chapter members
are Volunteers, no funds were spent
for administrative expenses. ;
The availability of funds to help
pay iot this expensive disease is
one urgent reason tor contributing
to the March of Dimes," says Mr.
Grady Mercer and Attorney Russell
Lanier, Campaign Directors. "In ad
dition, prospects for a vaccine,
which may, prevent polio, appears
good, but the tests this spring will
cost a lot of money. This means
individual contributions must . be
ncreased it the goal Is to be reached.
"We, therefore, appeal to every
citizen in Duplin County to give
more in to the March of Dimes."

Church Attendance Crusade Enters
Second Month In Four Local Churches
The' Church' Attendance Crusade
being conducted by Kenansvllle,
Magnolia, Unity, and Wesley Meth
odist . Churches enters its second
month this week. The Church At
tendance Crusade is part of the
evangelistic program of The North
Carolina Methodist, Conference for
the 1953-54 Church year. This pro
gram is designed to increase attend
ance in Church School and Worship
Service, to stimulate interest in the
total program of the church, , to
bring unchurched families into the
fellowship of the church, and to
make every member a working
member. The program started the
first Sunday in January and will
continue through Easter.
Already results from the Crusade
are encouraging. Kenansvllle ' has
had the best Church School Atten
dance in the history ot the church.
More interest is being shown in
all phases of the church work.
Magnolia has had large crowds dur
ing the worship services and also
good attendance at Church School.
Unity has raised its average atten
dance almost thirty members per
Sunday. Perhaps the attendance
at Wesley has made the greatest
jump. The Church School has In
creased steadily each week and is
now at a new high in recent church
history. Besides the increased at
tendance at each church, there has
developed an even finer spirit of
fellowship among the church mem
bers and the churches.
These fine reports are due to the
hard work being done by the var
ious Crusade Committees. The Pub
licity Committees have been con
tacting the entire membership
through letters and church bulet-
ins. The Visitation Committees hawispnt'fe?.. this" important -business
oeea vuuimg me eiiure meuiucij
ship and speaking to them abou
Church Loyalty. "Missed You"
cards are also being sent out each
week to those who were missed the
week before. The Registration Com
mittees have been hard at work
keeping accurate attendance re
cords and charts. The work of these !
committees has been the' ' telling 1
factor in the good results.
Plans are now being made: to in
crease the efforts with each passing
week. It is hoped that all four,
churches will reach new heights in'
their attendance records. Plans are
being made for "Roll Call Sunday's"!
and "Bring A Visitor Sunday's"
The Visitation Committees also
plan to increase their visitation
aaph waaIt nnH will start visitfnff
fhB .lnhllrrle(j fBmIuM this month.
Registration Committees, who
have already been overworked, are
now getting ready to count even
bigger results.
As the second month of The
Church Attendance Crusade begins
there is a feeling among all work-
ers that even greater things are yet
t0 COme.
